. the indication that we're getting now is that this is a big deal, that this is going to be very large, and that everything is going to be on the table as far as bringing the corporate tax rates down, closing tax loopholes, but also cuts in entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid, possibly talking about social security and changing the way it works in the long term. these are big items that obviously could not get done legislatively before the august 2nd deadline. if there was some agreement reached between the leaders to raise the debt ceiling and agree to the framework by which they are going to tackle these big ticket items, that would be a significant thing. and it seemed like both parties were so far apart it will be interesting to see through the weekend if there can be some negotiated deal on a big framework. martha: it's interesting, bret because we've heard a little bit of what has come out of the preliminary discussions that vice president biden was part of. it seemed as though in those discussions they would talk big dollar figures although they wouldn't talk about specific
, and it cracks. what happens is the road actually buckles or explodes, as they say, which leads to those big, major potholes. that causes traffic jams, it also leads to city budgets being drained because of the work crews. it's not just the roads. you look at some of the homes. again, the ground dries up, no rain to moisten it, and what happens is it cracks. and when the ground cracks, your home settles. when your home settles, the foundation -- as you can see there -- cracks. it is a major, major concern. listen to this. >> we're just noticing them all over the outside of our house. i am worried. um, i don't know what to do, i mean, do i ke my hose on or my sprinkler on? >> reporter: when the temperatus stay in the 90s for extended period of times, the -- periods of time, the problem for farmers is trying to keep their animals and plants cool, and it's almost impossible, so you have many animals that are dying. that leads to rising food prices. listen to one farmer. >> those birds were full size, current goes off, i've got less than five minutes to get fans running. and if it fries somethin
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
to lead, they want them to come to washington and take care of the big issues that confront us right now, one is definitely the debt ceiling, the other is the debt. i tell you this. what they want is for us to take care of these big issues in a way that will allow you to work within our physical means, but at the same time provide them with the opportunities that they need for the future. this back and forth, these battling press conferences day to day, the ongoing conversations that they've been having, folks watching this at home have been terribly frustrated. my hope is we can get to a resolution on this very quickly. alisyn: sure, obviously everybody wants a resolution. americans are frustrated: doesn't it put the democrats in a bit of an untenable position to say, we are actually against a balanced budget? >> i think we need to clarify, democrats are not against the balanced budget. they are calling for a shared sacrifice. and the challenge is during the entire conversations about the debt ceiling, the debt and the deficit, what you've seen are democrats putting things on the line,
: the last 48 hours this investigation has gone from about this big to this big. some officials may have already been caught lying. not only that, now we're told u.s. wasn't just helping send guns to mexico, taxpayers paid for some of those guns. and more than one federal agency knew about it. that's the latest in the scandal we know as fast and furious. according to sources an f.b.i. informant allegedly used taxpayer money to buy guns on behalf of the cartels, the f.b.i. knew it, they allowed it to happen and they failed to tell congress or the agency that was investigating him, causing that agency, the atf to spend two years, thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars pursuing information the f.b.i. already had about a man, the atf would never be allowed to arrest because he worked for the f.b.i. this information was confirmed this week sources say by the acting atf director ken nelson who met secretly on july 4th with congressman darrell issa and senator charles grassley. nelson who is going to be the fall guy in this scandal dropped a few bombs in his deposition indicating others
the economy still in big trouble. look at this. a slowdown in hire anything june pushing the unemployment rate now to 9.2%. only 18,000 net new jobs were added to the work force last month. at least 250,000 jobs are needed per month to drive the unemployment rate down significantly. and get this, since president obama took office we've seen the economy lose two and a half million jobs. president obama assuring americans there is a reason the numbers are so disappointing. listen to this. >> the sooner that the markets know that the debt limit ceiling will have been raised and that we have a serious plan to deal with our debt and deficit, the sooner that we give our businesses the certainty that they will need in order to make additional investments to grow and hire, and we'll provide more confidence to the rest of the world as well so that they are committed to investing in america. >> molly henneberg live for us at the white house with more on the president's reaction. molly? >> hi, gretchen. clearly not the type of monthly jobs report any president wants to see. unemployment up for the third
something that that big a deal. so are you concerned, congressman west, about what happens come august 2nd? and that if it is, you know, the situation where people stop getting social security checks, that folks like you will pay for it come election time? >> no. my concern is we have a president that is not willing to do his job, and that is to prioritize the spending that he is digging in his heels being a rigid i'd log, and he must understand that every single one of his economic policies have failed. it's time he realize that he does not have the moral high ground in this argument and that we do have the right type of viable solutions in the near term and for the long term. martha: let me ask you this, in the caucus meeting that you were in this morning, what did you walk out of with in terms of whether or not there's going to be any deal? are we going to get any deal, or are so many republicans in the house basically digging in their heels and saying no deal? >> well, i think the thing right now is that we understand there's some principles that we're looking for, pretty much exactly
for stories, that is right. look, many people say that goldman sachs is a big supporter of the obama administration, a big supporter of democrats generally. this is an unfavorable report for the administration so kind of burr right on a friday afternoon. alisyn: interesting. well we're glad that you've brought it to light for us. stu varney thanks so much. another fox news alert for you right now, because we are just getting word that the president is already threatening to veto a bill that will be hitting the house floor tomorrow. the tea party-backed cut, cap and balance plan would provide the president a 2.4 trillion increase on the debt limit, and would also include a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget. congressman dan hrupb gree l u.n joins me to talk about this live. hello, long man. >> hello. >> we have to see whether he will really veto it. the president has said a lot of things that haven't come true. this is the most leaderless president i've seen in my lifetime. here we have a situation in which we should be coming together, and yet the president
question is whether they can move, pasoo move past thinking about this big deal, move towards the possibility of a 2 1/2 trillion dollars deal, and whether they can come to some conclusion that that's not going to work, it's not going to get past the house, if it has any tax increases. that's the bottom line. we've heard it from speaker boehner on my show yesterday. it's just a matter of head counting. and now you have senator mcconnell's plan out there that he describes as a last ditch effort, but it's already getting praised by democrats like senator reid and house speaker nancy pelosi, so the going bet now inside washington is that they'll continue to talk to try to get to some bigger deal, but that the escape valve is there and it may be in the form of senator mcconnell's potential. martha: that raises a lot of questions about how a deal that looks like that would do in the house. and we heard president obama last night in an interview basically saying if they don't come to a deal, social security checks are in jeopardy, as westerly as august 3rd. here's a piece of sound,
,000 in a nice check, here you go. >> look, whenever you've got a big government give away of real money, a billion dollars you'll have economic questions and some moral problems as well. for example, who gets the money and who decides who gets the money? the criticism would be that maybe those people, they've been mow lit tpoliticized, and the pt is buying folks with money. two people, equal, both in trouble on the mortgage, one gets help, another doesn't get help, that is moral hazard, you have to ask that question as well. where does the money come from? every dollar that our government shells out, 40-cents of it has to be borrowed from somebody else because we don't have all that money, we are borrowing 40-cents on the dollar. is that moral to be shelling out a billion, and borrowing 400 million to do it? martha: the calculation there has to be on the part of the administration that it's even worth it for us to go deeper into debt for that 40-cents per dollar, because bailing out these individuals who can't stay in their home is going to ultimately help, you know, sort of prop up the
're doing. not getting a big reaction from that in the mainstream media. we're going to have a fair and balanced debate on that moments from now. >>> and we continue to keep one eye on this story, awful breaking news coming in the from norway after that bombs -- bombing earlier. now reports that a gunman went into a youth camp, and the wires are saying that a number of people have been shot in this incident. ambassador john bolton joins us now in three minutes on that story as an investigation is now underway following another deadly bus crash on our nation's roads as well. one person is dead, dozens more are injured, and we may be joined moments from now by the soldier who helped to save lives at this scene. he became a first responder. this is an incredible story, and we're trying to get a conversation with him going. we'll keep you posted on that. >>> also an ohio policeman under fire for a rant that was caught on his dash cam. did this officer overreact? the we're going to play that tape for you, you can see what you think. be right back, more "america live". >> what's the first
-- gretchen: you're saying it was good news that eric holder decided to drop the other charges. the big argument from the right was when you decide to criminal until lee prosecute your agents that work for the cia it pretty much handcuffs their ability to do their job. >> if they acted within the advice of the office of legal counsel they've got a great defense there and i think that the pragmatic concerns won out as i said. moving forward with the two cases that we have, we have clear evidence of detainee abuse where the detainee in afghanistan was khaeupbdz to a a concrete die and basically died from exposure. we have one detainee who died in prison in iraq who may have been beaten to death. it's unclear. the folks that were involved in the inch tier tkpwaeugs and the treatment, they'll have a fair trial, a presumption of innocence, so, you know, the system is going to work, i think. gretchen: it's interesting because some of those enhanced terror tactics they haven't been in practice since 2007 is my understanding when president bush took those particular controversial techniques, i
are nowhere near that. that's a big gap between 18,000 and 250, i don't need to tell you. so president obama since he took office, we have seen the economy lose two and a half million jobs. that's a fact. that's just the raw numbers that are out there. so there's a lot of questions about what kind of impact the economy will have on president obama's re-election hopes. take a listen to how the treasury secretary, tim geithner, responded to that question about the president's economic record. listen to this. >> you talk about what's good for the economy, a lot of this discussion about debt is, ultimately, to free up space for jobs to be created. it's not happening. people are still out of work. here's the charter of the president's economic record, this is based on government information, treasury department, u.s. bureau of labor stats. unemployment, 7.3% on inauguration date, up to 9.2% with the latest report, you see the debt figures up 35% -- >> let me just say, that's a ridiculous table. martha: that is a ridiculous table. we're going to talk about that. is it? we've got a fair and balance
is it the big question of default and whether or not it would indeed have to happen? weigh in, you can see what other folks are saying there, we'll check back in on that survey in a little while. let's go for a moment to the state of alabama where educators are raising concerns about the state's new immigration law. the people who run the school district are complaining that following that law may put them at risk of losing federal funding. jonathan serrie has that story live from atlanta. >> reporter: sponsors of the new law say it's going to give alabama taxpayers an accurate assessment of just how much they pay each year to support public services, including education for illegal immigrants. but some public school officials say it places them in an uncomfortable position. some alabama educators fear the state's new law cracking down on illegal immigration could jeopardize millions of dollars of federal funding for public schools. at issue is one provision requiring schools to report the number of undocumented students they enroll. phoenix city school superintendent larry dechera says it's eu
. >> the problem with a mini deal is we have a maxi problem. and the big problems aren't going to go away if you cut a mini deal. it just delays the moment of truth. i would say better noun then, but if we can't we'll take the savings we can get now and relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> reporter: he also talked about concerns that people have that the president will bypass congress all together and just raise the debt level on his own. we'll have a fair & balanced debate on why some democrats say that may be their best option. that is coming up. also republicans who are running for president being asked to sign a strict commitment to reducing our debt. this is called the cut, cap and balance pledge, and those who don't sign their names are feeling the heat. doug mcelway is live in washington with 0 more on that. >> reporter: you're going to be hearing a lot about this plan to cut, cap and balance as the senate resumes its work tomorrow after the july 4th holiday. you'll probably hear a lot about it as the republican primary season heats up as well. some pundits say it may prov
inches of killing their next big target on the terror list, u.s. born radical muslim cleric anwar al-awlaki, the al-qaida leader linked to several deadly plots against america. jennifer griffin is live with the breaking story today from the pentagon. she has the details on it. >> reporter: we knew they had come very close on may 5th to nearly killing anwar al-awlaki four days after the bin laden raid. we did not know what went wrong with the mission and how close they came to killing lack r-r who as you mentioned is the american-born cleric, the most wanted terrorist after osama bin laden. we have cleared fro have learnea griffin missile made by rate three on. this is the first time we've heard discussed public plea about these missiles. they were attached to a fixed ring manned plane for the may 5th mission. they are significantly lighter than hell fire missiles and can strike trar gets such as the pickup truck that anwar al-awlaki was driving in at the time. there was manned aircraft including these marine harrier jets which ran low on fuel and had to pull back from the mission at
. there was a moment in time when president obama was talking about doing big things and being the guy and turnin turning this into a much needed win by a beleaguered president. we are seeing this fade away, we are seeing the administration give control of this discussion to capitol hill, just like with other things. martha: as you say, in previous confrontations when it came to healthcare, stimulus, all of that got pwubgd back to congress to work out the details. he looked like he wanted to be out in front of this. why do you think he changed his mind? >> reporter: it's really hard. being president is really hard but also doing a deal like this is really hard because the scope of what you're talking about isn't -- this isn't about money. we heard over the w weekend, or it's 400 billion on this or 800 billion on that, there is a chasm which exists between the republicans and the house, the conservatives from 2010 and president obama who is puerto rico the hreu ral wing of the democratic party and his victory in 2008. there is a rubber game that needs to be played here, that is the 2012 election a
our treasury debt to anyone who wants it. that is the big question whether they will be able to do that. we're told at this meeting they explained the mechanics what would happen in the event of a shutdown. we are also told that they have been assured that there will not be a shutdown or that bondholders will not be honored, probably news of relief to them because they would be stuck holding bad paper, bad promises and that would just be bad period. so, the other details as to what we the public will get to know might be released from the treasury department itself after the market closes, even though that is not necessarily a sure thing. but in the event of a downgrade, all bets are off there. i will leave that off the table for the time-being. let's say we don't meet this deadline, allison, then you're faced with the possibility of the government having to get by on a lot less but not anything. in other words, money is still coming in. we still have taxes taken out of our paycheck and the government will be still getting into the vicinity of 170 to $172 billion each month. unfort
a picture for us about how a newspaper like the "news of the world" goes about reporting on such a big story, what the level of editor, deputy editor, the senior reporter would be in putting together and overseeing a story like that? >> i think any big story, but for the purpose of process, most stories start out with a reporter, and that reporter may be being asked by the news editors to go and investigate a story, or they may have brought information about a story from their own contacts to the news editor. it is at that stage in a newspaper where the reporter and news editor discuss the veracity of the information, go out and check the allegations, and come back with a more considered view. you can imagine that every newspaper gets a lot of information to the news desk, and only a percentage, very small percentage makes it actually to publication. so there are many layers from reporter, to assistant news editor, to news editor. finally, this story will go to the back bench which will be the people that will oversee that story and often talk to a reporter directly with questions and amendm
is because he hasn't been tough enough, and there wasn't a big distinction between him and president obama, and he's showing that once again now. martha: all right. talk to me, you know, when you look at this politically, "the wall street journal" basically said this morning if tea party encourages its members and representatives on capitol hill to hold tight and not give any ground in this, they're basically handing the presidency to barack obama again in 2012. what say you? >> what are we talking about? are we talking about who's going to be our next president, or are we talking about fixing the problems that face america? we need to quit worrying about the next elections and worry about whether we're going to survive financially. and there are plans that could do it, there are other plans that can't, but nobody is looking at the overspending, looking at directly in the eye and saying we have to stop this. we spend over $4 billion a day in borrowed money. that's enough to build two and a half space shuttles a day. martha: wow. well, that's an eye-opener. jenny beth martin, thank you very
